This week is Vacation Bible School at church. I’m so grateful for the air conditioned facilities; very, very grateful we are not out at camp, where the pond is icky and it is not air conditioned.
I am the assistant to the snack leader, a high schooler. Each day we help one of the classes make a snack for all kids and staff — a snack that ties in with the lesson. Today they learned about the plagues, and this trail-mix sort of snack was called Bugs and Boils, which appealed greatly to the kids. The fruit gushers were especially enjoyed when related to oozing sores. I was mostly impressed with the colors of the tongues when the Snack Shack was finished.
So here is a portion of 75 bags of bugs and boils (pretzels, mini chocolate chips, raisins, fruit gushers, and mini marshmallows). It was a great plan to have the kids prepare the snack for the others, even if Monday it was a challenge to keep the pre-schoolers from eating the ingredients!
